That is because there has been no serious attempt to
promote/visibilize the other brands.

I think all the sister projects should be displayed at the top of the
site like the Google products in their new black bar.

Also, the Wikimedia brand / logo should not be hidden at the bottom of
the footer in every page!

I made some suggestions about this some time ago:

Maybe... or maybe they will be namespaces that hardly anyone knows
about because no one linked them in visible places.

And the "In the news" section of the Main Page of Wikipedia should be
a Wikinews one.
